Adopt a Soldier for the Holidays
Lake Pointe Medical Center (LPMC) and Texas Regional Medical Center at Sunnyvale (TRMC) are partnering to host “Adopt a Soldier for the Holidays” to send actively deployed soldiers care packages for the holidays. Beginning December 1st, we will set up “Adopt a Soldier Boxes” throughout our LPMC. Employees, community members and other businesses may choose to participate in one or more of the following areas:
- Within your business, adopt soldiers of your employees and coordinate with us for mailing.
- Friday, December 10th: We will need volunteers to check and pack boxes, fill out address labels and tape boxes – 1PM to ?.
- Delivery to the Post Office will take place on Monday, December 13th – details to be determined.
- Money donations: For those who would like to contribute cash instead of buying items and filling boxes, we will apply the donation to the cost of shipping the boxes ($12.50 each).

The boxes are free, but shipping is $12.50 when mailed to an APO or FPO.
